THE PROVINCE: Actor cross skips between TV sets

It’s been a crazy 2012 for Vancouver actor Roger Cross. 2013 is shaping up as more of the same as he juggles work on no less than three TV series...

... Cross started out 2012 with work on Continuum, another Canadian series, playing one of those ambiguous bad-guys — a terrorist leader from the future whose gang comes to present-day Vancouver to thwart a future corporate dictatorship.

Continuum was a ratings hit when it debuted on Canada’s Showcase and was picked up for broadcast in the U.S. and Europe.

The work piled up further for Cross when, during a break in his Continuum schedule last spring, the actor filmed the pilot episode for the Vancouver-filmed CW series Arrow. That comic book-based U.S. series went into production in July and filming will continue to next April...

... And as 2013 approaches, Continuum has announced a mid-January start on four months filming for its second season. So from then until the end of February, Cross will be hop-scotching between three sets. [Continuum, Arrow, and Motive.]

In January is when it gets really dicey,” he says. “I have the feeling the first few episodes of Continuum will look a little busy.

Nevertheless, Cross is gratified that two of his three series are home-grown Canadian.

We have the talent here, but everyone’s been shipped everywhere else,” he says. “Now to see it all come together, that’s what I love about this town, we’re competing with everyone.”

Continuum premieres in the US on Monday, January 14, 2013 at 8/7C. Cast includes Rachel Nichols, Victor Webster, Erik Knudsen, Stephen Lobo, Richard Harmon, Roger R. Cross, Stargate SG-1's Tony Amendola, Brian Markinson and Stargate Universe's Jennifer Spence.

Arrow airs on Wednesday at 8/7C on The CW.

Motive airs in Canada on CTV.
